The whole path to the castle was lined with shady trees and I was in awe of the beautiful castle with the high walls beckoning to the visitors.
Since its destruction during the Second World War, the re-establishment of the castle was indeed a smart move to preserve the historical value of the town.
However, there are of course partial original remains in the towers and the rock walls.
According to Wikipedia, this castle is located on a sandstone rock and sits strategically to the northern region of Nuremberg city.
Wikipedia: It comprises three parts: the Emperor's buildings ("Kaiserburg"), the mostly built buildings of the rulers of Nuremberg ("Burggrafenburg"), and the buildings on the eastern side ("städtische Burganlage").
Beautifully preserved half-timbered houses line the walkway into the castle and this was also part of the picture welcoming visitors inside the castle grounds.
Out into nature, the beautiful gardens are an enchanting view

Being one of the most historic landmark here in Nurnberg, the castle which once stands grand is a nostalgic memory for most who have seen the defending walls in times of war and remains the focus of admiration from locals and foreigners alike.
